Is Watermelon Safe For Dogs?

Help Your Pup Beat the Heat With a Slice of Watermelon

I'm always seeking special ways to switch up my pup's treats with some healthy human alternatives. He already loves frozen carrot bits and canned pumpkin, but his latest love affair is with watermelon, which is so convenient, because today is National Watermelon Day.

Offering up a tiny bit of seedless watermelon is a safe snack, and I chop the fruit into squares and serve it ice cold for the steamy season. Not only is this fruit a great low-calorie treat, but its high water content gets fluids into the bodies of pets who turn noses up and away at the sight of an ordinary bowl.
